One of our flagship projects, Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Drive is designed to provide climate, market, production, storage & financing information to farmers in rural communities leveraging Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) as well as on-site training services to boost productivity of Rice, Cocoa, Cashew, Maize and Plantain farmers in Nigeria.
We have engaged with over 30 smallholder farmers in Abeokuta in an attempt to help them learn about Climate Smart Agricultural strategies that will help them build resilience and adapt to climate change.
Ultimately, this is to build their capacity to improve their output so we can further connect them to markets, storage facilities and financing that will improve their livelihoods and continually contribute to food security in Nigeria.
Agriculture sector has the capacity to create multiple jobs for restive & unemployed youths in Nigeria. However, poor access to capital, land and labour can be a huge deterrent for young people.
Our intervention however seeks to promote youth inclusion in Agriculture by helping these youths acquire the right Agri-tech skills and education that would help them plug into the Job and Business opportunities in Agriculture sector leveraging technology.
During the workshop, participants will learn about the use of emerging technologies such as blockchain technology, drones, mobile agriculture technology and soilless farming technology in Agriculture for profit.
However, the practical sessions of the Soilless Farming Technology will be offered for FREE (CSR) by a partner organization that will be announced shortly.
